Latino Vote Nevada

If you’ve been following the democratic primary election (You better have!) you know that Hillary Clinton won. While this makes me very sad ( I’m a huge Bernie supporter), I’m happy to know that the latino vote was not the reason she won.

 

 

Here’s a great article on the results: http://edition.cnn.com/2016/02/22/politics/polls-nevada-caucuses-democrats-latinos/

Time to get in shape – 60% of latinos are overweight

Little overweight? Out of shape? Don’t feel good?

Completely normal. Most Americans, myself included are suffering from at least one of the three above, or had at point.

I’m chubby, and that’s being generous. A few more pounds I would probably be obese! I don’t feel that big when I walk around the streets; that’s only because everyone else is big..latino obesity

I recently went to a conference to Singapore. Walking around the streets it dawned on me. I’m not just overweight, I’m really overweight. Compared to the local Singaporean people I was a giant, a tubby giant at that. Being in America and a particularly overweight part of America I’ve gotten accustomed to seeing big people. A little too much it seems. Astonishingly over 60% of Latinos are overweight. Diabetes and related issues are killing and hurting thousands of Latinos, and isn’t something people are talking about. They should be!

It took traveling to another country (skinny country) for me to realize that I’m part of the problem, but I also want to be part of the solution.

I googled tons of weight loss and nutrition websites and found a lot of great ones. I started working out and in 5 weeks so far have lost 7 pounds. Not a lot, but progress is progress.

Here’s my daily routine

  • Wake up eat bowl of oats + banana
  • Take my pre work out drink – Check it out at B Nox Review
  • Hit the gym for 1 hour
  • Take creatine + protein powder after gym
  • Work
  • Lunch – Chicken breast + veggies
  • Work
  • Go home and do some stretches
  • Eat dinner – Large portion of non fried meat ( Turkey/ pork/ beef) + veggies
  • Relax
  • Some fruits or vegetables

The routine above has worked well for me. I tried going to the gym after work but always had excuses to miss it. Now I go in the morning and haven’t missed a training in 3 weeks. Getting started is the hardest part, but once you start it becomes easier. Just started doing something.

car insurance new jersey

Car insurance in NJ is too expensive!

I hate car insurance for two big reasons:

  1. Ridiculously expensive in New Jersey
  2. Mandatory by law

I rather drive without insurance, but by law but unfortunately not a single state allows that. I’m extra unlucky because I now live in New Jersey. Which is probably one of the worst states for car insurance. We pay a lot for car insurance, too much.

Right now I’m paying about $260 for car insurance ( Brand New Jeep). In Nevada I probably would have paid like $120.

I complained to my friend about this and he recommended I check out http://www.autoinsurancemonkey.com and compare insurance quotes, so I did. I got 11 quotes instantly, and found a company that would give me the same coverage for about $210. So I was able to $50 in under 30 minutes. Great investment of my time.

So if you’re looking for cheap car insurance in NJ I recommend autoinsurancemonkey.com

On another note, if you have some credit troubles I ran into another awesome site: carloansfox.ca. It’s a Canadian company, but works with Americans. They specialize in helping people get bad credit car loans. My friend just used them and had a great experience, so I’m giving them a free shoutout!

dallas hiking

Random Rant, I Hurt my Back..

I was hiking recently, in the early morning and unfortunately strained my back. Fortunately for me, I was near my car when this happened. I drove home (In extreme pain I might add) and did some googling for a chiropractor.

After about 1 hour of this, I found a pretty good chiropractor that was open and could take me in ASAP. I had my appointment, and all I’ll say was that this guy really new his stuff. I feel a lot better after my appointment, but I’m still in some pain.

The doctor recommend I rest for 2 days, which shouldn’t be a problem since I haven’t taken any sick days for years. Staying at home is going to be pretty boring for me though, I’m an outdoor cat not an indoor cat. But I guess this is a good time to me to catch up with some tv shows. I haven’t watched Game of thrones for a while, but fortunately for me no one has spoiled it yet!

Also while I was getting my back fixed, I talked to the doctor about his website. Since I work in marketing I was interested in who had created his site (Dallas is not as big as it seems!). He told me about a company I’ve never heard of, called http://www.savedbysearch.com/. Apparently they specialize in Chiropractic SEO & marketing for chiropractors.

Seeing the company made me realize two things:

  1. Marketing is niching down a lot
  2. People are willing to hire you, even if they never met you (This company is in Canada)

And that I really need to start freelancing some more. Now I’m off to watch some Game of Thrones.
